In Spite of Covid-19

Life isn't easy these days...Covid-19 has spread its ugly wings to all parts of the world. Either we learn to live with it until a way is found to end the pandemic - or we fail terribly. At the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center in Nakuru we have decided to go on as well as possible. The Live and Learn in Kenya Int'l community is a strong one. Parents know exactly how important education is for their children's futures and are willing and able to be role models when it comes to showing the children what is necessary for everyday living. They may not be able to teach them how to run a business or even help them with their homework - but they can show them how to care for animals that give them meat and milk - and how to farm the land to grow crops for themselves and their families. When possible, the older children help with the farm work at the Center's rented field. We grow as much of our own food as possible and the parents do all of the work - from clearing the field - planting - weeding - watering - harvesting - drying the beans, maize, and grains. The children who are too young to help at all watch! They see what is necessary.

Our dream is still to be able to buy the field that we rent so that we would not be forced to pay the rent - which is quite high. Maybe 2021 will be a magic year for us! We can only hope - and get to work while we're at it.

Thank you so much for your kind support and happy, healthy, and joyful 2021!
